Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Woods Jr "I try to minimize medication which tends to block deeper understanding, using it only when necessary.  I try to focus with the patient on the connection between current problems and past life events.  I feel such understanding frees the patient from automatic reactions and the actions coming from them."
